An ecosystem database was developed to provide (i) time-series of satellite images for all protected areas over 10 sq km; and (ii) assessments of protected-area management effectiveness; For more details see the GEO Work Plan Progress Report.

Near-real time marine data dissiminated, linking providers world-wide

Marine data (from ChlorGIN) was disseminated in near-real time via the GEONETCast infrastructure, linking providers in North/South America, Africa and Europe with user communities in South America, Africa and China; For more details see the GEO Work Plan Progress Report.
